If the team can run the bases like scotty has lately, it’ll be an easy sweep
It’s a Beaver eat beaver world.
pics. or it didn’t happen
Judging by how the series went, I guess it didn’t happen 🙁
No more predictions from you please
To be fair, I did say “If”
I’m too lazy to look. Is Cal-Poly any good
They have a few good players, but a terrible record (7-14). Historically they’re decent.
We can expect Gabe Clark to go nuts vs these guys.
They beat USC so they have something going on.
Dave in Tumwater flying the AB flag on the Joe Beaver Show just now 😀
Yes, nice job by D in T.
Even got Parker to basically agree that “something” had gone wrong in the last few years of the Riley era.
Parker’s sidekick (who is at least partially responsible for the technical foul ups today) says it feels like piling on. Parker doesn’t entirely buy it, says he led Dorian Smith a bit. In response to a question about how the D will return to earlier status, Smith initially said of the new staff, “it’s better” caught himself a bit to stay PC.
After being told to pretend Emperor Biley had clothes for the last few years and seeing all signs of vindication since he left, I say a piling-on victory lap is justified.
If they didn’t value what DIT says, they wouldn’t take his call. I think they are perceptive enough to understand that things were going downhill.
This series concerns me. As said before, the Beavs must sweep virtually all series vs lower tier teams to have a successful season; this series falls into that category. I expect the Beavs to win 2 of the 3 games, I won’t feel too good about that and would really like to see 3…especiallly at home.
Some things which indicate they are “not any good”:The Mustangs have about a .955 fielding average (does that return to the mean this weekend?), an ERA of 4.35, have given up 4 BB’s/game, and are batting .250. It took 3 errors on the part of SC for the Mustangs to prevail by a single run at home (BTW: SC came back to smack ’em 13-0 and 9-2).
Things which concern me: Baseball takes funny bounces sometimes so a break or two can prevent a sweep, the youth of this team will have its focus tested as they may think ahead to UCLA. Apparently, the Mustangs have some injured guys returning for this series, three games could be enough for them to get their feet under them.
With Casey’s coaching that focus thing may not be such a factor……..I’ve talked myself into feeling a (very) little better.
Sweeping all series against lower level teams isn’t a must for a successful season. To get a national seed they would but I don’t see them doing it against every team. Every team will slip up eventually against mediocre to bad opponents. They’ll sweep Cal Poly though. They have 1 really good starter and 2 really good relievers, the rest aren’t too impressive. Beavers have edge in starting pitching and offense. The Beavers will take care of business this weekend
In theory they should sweep, but baseball is a bizarre game. We’ll see.
Not sure what you mean by “lower level.” They are a D1 squad just like the Beavs. For a few weeks lsst year they were rated #1 in the country. They hosted a regional and were upset, just mising an appearance in Omaha.
This year, due to graduation, pro-defections and injuries they are struggling. Would expect a good series. JB
Congratulations!!!! They found a way to make soccer more watchable
Make soccer more watchable? Did they institute a rule prohibiting clutching their junk at the pixie dust firing line?
I can’t stand this screen in front of the camera. Can’t we get a CF camera?
Cal Poly thrower won 12 games last year and is the real deal. Beavs hitless through 3. 0-0.
1-0 Cal Poly
Mike Parker is MIA…lol
I heard a flushing sound right before he came back on the air.
MIA as in he was scheduled to call this game but was a no show?
Whisky Soaked Napkin has been quiet since 5:15 too. Could be related
Mike Parker can’t hold a napkin to Whiskey
Solo shot and cal poly leads. Good AB, fought off some good pitches and then Moore leaves on over the plate
Hendrix rips one down the RF line for Leadoff triple
Damn, that ball was crushed to dead center but it just never carries there
Hendrix scores on Morrison GO
Moore not as sharp as he’s been. Leaving a lot of 2 strike pitches over the plate. Hendrix chases down a long fly ball to left center to strand two mustangs.
Parker must have the trots.
The long silences on the stream are when radio broadcasts pre-recorded stuff (commercials, station ID, etc.).
Well, not always. Technical difficulties.
a late night grand slam at Denny’s has that effect on one’s gastrointestinal system
You shouldn’t have mentioned “grand slam”
10 pitch AB for a leadoff walk for cal poly. One out line drive past Hamilton and Mo in a jam
Off Moores glove and sacks juices with one out
Nice catch by Nobach saves a couple of runs but mustangs get a sac fly
6.5 innings and cal poly 2-1 on 7 hits. Moore over 80 pitches. Beavs with just 2 hits, one an IF single
With less than two strikes the cal poly 3bman plays up and Morrison makes him pay, grounding the ball past him for a two out base hit. Harrison grounds out on the first pitch and the cal poly pitcher is cruising.
Squibbed down the 3b line and cal poly has the leadoff guy on. Mo really unlucky. 3rd base hit that way.
Moore gone after 96 pitches. Two on one out for Reser
B2b singles. 3-1
Hamilton with the bad throw home. 4-1
Don’t get going to Reser here. Oregon State’s offense hasn’t been good for a couple weeks. Feels like this game is over
Gotta get him in a meaningful situation and see if back to 100%. Lefty v lefty.
Grand slam and now its over
As noted last week, Hamilton can’t be the 3B.
Cal poly approach at the plate much better but it seems just one of those days. They’re not really hitting the ball hard but getting base hits with two strikes. Reser with a K and gives way to Bauer
Bauer ain’t the answer
Perfect. Now it’s raining
So what do you do when punched in the mouth? Clark pops out. Howard fans. Cary shallow fly out to left. Time to flush and move on.
Team hasn’t been playing well and finally had a game where the pitching couldn’t carry them. Hopefully it’s wake up call and they start producing at the plate like they were earlier this year
Fox makes an appearance and doesn’t pitch too bad. Bloop single and a 4 pitch walk. Gets the DP ball but Donahue couldn’t get the ball out of his glove but Fox ends the inning with a K
I don’t know Angry. Poly looks pretty good. They came in fielding at .955 but they’ve made the plays tonight.
regression to the mean?
Well what i wrote was:
“In theory they should sweep, but baseball is a bizarre game. We’ll see.”
Never predicted a sweep or even a series win. Also pointed out they had some good players (I think 3 were drafted). But I live in the area, and they are not viewed as having a strong team.
I’ve watched enough baseball to know record means nothing in this sport. Anyone betting on baseball, for example, would go broke. It’s only over a very long season can you deduce anything. It’s the nature of the game.
I’ll take the rap for this one. I tuned in when it was 3-1. Blinked and it was 8-1
refs swallowing their whistles when the Utes have the ball
-1? Someone’s a Duke lover
Less than 100 pitch complete game and beavs only manage 4 hits
I’m at the UofA game here in Tucson. Ucks look way overrated. Just dropped an infield fly for a double.
Sparty to the elite 8. Tom Izzo always has his teams prepared in March
I forgot the one rule I always follow this time of year. Never doubt an Izzo team. I got lazy and forgot this rule. I’ve won mucho gelt remembering this rule in the past.
Oh well. Live another day.
It’s uncanny. Meechicken State can middle thru an entire season, wind up in the middle of the pack, but come tournament time, they’re nails and usually make a deep run……………….

That’s 18 straight years in the tournament and only 3 times have they been knocked out in the first round and not since 2006.
Izzo is great. Unique in that he is a very successful coach that is both respected and liked by the opposing fan bases in the B1G. He is gracious in victory and defeat and his ex players genuinely love the guy. His team this year did not play up to their normal standards, with dumb mistakes and somewhat weak rebounding. Goph’s actually beat them, late in the season, in East Lansing for the first time since ’97. Izzo is interesting to watch in person. When he pulls a player for doing something stupid, he always addresses the player and corrects the error before setting him down with a pat on the butt. No screaming and yelling. He is winning with very good, but not super elite players that generally stick around and get better year to year. Trice, Dawson, and Valentine have been through the wars and are excellent players. Hard to not like a Tom Izzo team.
Izzo seems very genuine when interviewed. I root against Kentucky, Duke, Arizona and Norh Carolina, but usually for Sparty. Glad there is one elite coach out there who still feels like a normal Joe.
The one hitter in the mlb; pat Casey pitching techniques; California prospects who like Oregon State Beavers; Oregon State Beavers footprint national rankings; Oregon state awards; Current women’s better than 1982 men’s basketball.
Are you google-planting?
Oregon State Beavers will not stop you from mentioning recruiting, best college towns, top research universities and ridicule of climate change deniers.
Ted Cruz is just guano loco. How is this guy even a thing?
Oh yeah… Texas.
As stupid as I think Texas is in reality, I would never accuse them of Ted Cruz stupidity. I just want to put that out there. One monumentally stupid ignoramus for the ages does not a state make.
And I make this consolation knowing that idiot boy and Rick Perry claim this lowland as their home. That’s a really, really low bar that apparently was seen as a challenge for low-ness.
I wish I loved money. If I did, I would be a Texas Republican. One of my best friends from college is a GOP “strategist” in Texas, and he has to be the most cynical person I know. He’s rich as fuck and unhappy because his only friends are liberals like me… who accept him because we knew him from way back when. He wouldn’t be caught dead with the people he doesn’t want voting.
And if you think that last line was of my own imagination, think again.
Go ahead and love money, Jack. It’s nice to have to buy stuff!
Good grief why is our bullpen so awful recently? I miss Schultz, Bryant, and Englebreckt
Beavs need to get the last two games. It feels like the baseball media is looking for a reason to keep them out of the top 25. The two bad losses to New Mexico hung around for awhile, be nice if the same thing does not happen with Cal Poly.
The Mustangs send a sophomore lefty today who is 1-4 with a 4.88 ERA. After usc lost their first game to Poly they outscored the mustangs 22-2 over the next two games.
Englebreckt=injured. Bad break for the pen. Happens all the time to pitching staffs though.
Beavs made the “Ten Thoughts” piece by Kendall Rogers on D1. He expects them to win Sat and Sun.
I expected 2 of 3, but hate to see the loss come first, puts pressure on two in a row. Still think Beavs will pull two W’s in this series.
BTW: Some pretty good ball being played in Angry’s Santa Barbara neighborhood.
Cal Poly leads 1-0 three batters into the game.
Beavers are playing some brutal baseball. Rasmussen is keeping them in the game but the offense just looks atrocious. 1-0 after 5
b6, down 0-3, nobody out and runners at 1 & 2. This is it, time to pull Clark for a runner.
Two singles and a BB net ONE run for the Beavs, 1-3 going to t7.
Donahue’s fine baserunning on a swinging K gets him from 1st to 3rd. Noticed that, unlike Riley, Casey is much more focused on what to do next in the game than on celebrating.
b7, one down, Donahue on 3rd. New pitcher for Mustangs.
Hustlin’ Hawaiians manufacture a run. Clark ends the inning. 2-3 through 7
Rasmussen 96 pitches, only 58 strikes.
We need a new thread. This one has bad carma.
I concur, new thread. And i blame Scotty for his kiss and tell!
No regrets, no apologies!
Beavs running bases like I did last year, stranded and thrown out on second
There goes the ranking.
Still waiting for Clark to go nuts.
At least it’s non-con.
I’m reminded of what my old boss used to say, “tomorrow will be better Steve”

Funny as shit watching Whoreton waddle his fat ass out to the mound. Guy looks like a fucking walrus. Fighting Oprahs lead 3-1 in the 5th but ‘Cats have the bases loaded and nobody out
6-3 Arizona now
Cats plate 8 in the 5th and lead 9-3. It was a comedy of errors lol. I’m sorry but the ducks are gonna be 2-6 in conference play after tonight. They aren’t very good or deserving of their ranking
Tonight I spoke to a punter trying to make the NFL. The subject of Johnny Hecker and OSU came up. When a Husky grad began to praise the Riley era, the kid, the punter, immediately stated that within the football insider community, coach Riley is not considered one of the brightest bulbs.
Further infringement on our constitutional rights … SB 941. Rallies are April 1 at the State Capital and other places around the state.
If you haven’t already you should check this out and see what is happening. Big Brother is watching…
Thanks for the warning there Paul Revere. Please remind me of the other “infringements” on our constitutional rights so I can get really angry. JB
it’s a ridiculously stupid band aid that will not prohibit people who can not legally obtain firearms from getting one. But it’s “for the children.”
Really? There are still people against background checks for gun purchases?
there are still people that don’t understand that criminals don’t follow laws?
Every gun I’ve purchased (legally) I’ve had to pass a background check
And that negatively affects you (are yer sister) how exactly? Oh god, you might occasionally have to fill out a form and wait a day or two.
I’ll concede, most guns employed in a gun-crime were obtained illegally; one random website I just Googled up says 93%. Wikipedia says there were 8,855 gun homicides in 2012, that means 620 people were murdered with legally purchased guns in that year. Some portion of those 620 people would have been saved by background checks. How many people have to be saved in order to make a slight inconvenience to yourself OK?
And of course, none of this mentions the 19,392 gun suicides (also 2012), the majority of which I assume were committed with legally purchased guns. Better mental-illness background checks on those people may have prevented many of their deaths as well.

Dude! you just proved my point and you don’t even know it. If those 620 legal gun purchases were exactly what you stated, legal, then those 620 sales were subject to and passed a back ground check!
Thanks for proving the point that SB941 is a band aid that would do nothing except further harass law abiding firearm owners. And if you actually read SB 941 You’ve probably also never heard of the brady bill either. Individuals that own or attempt to purchase a firearm legally cannot obtain or own one if they’ve been convicted of ANY felony or misdemeanor assault. How about they actually try enforcing the laws that are already in place
your anger is misplaced. Since you stated that 93% percent of all guns used in a crime were obtained illegally, why do you focus in the 7% that were not?
With all due respect, how the hell did you pass a background check?! 😉
It’s pretty simple really. Don’t be a criminal or have a rap sheet. Staying out of trouble is actually pretty easy when you follow don’t break the law. Consuming napkins is not a crime
I don’t think that gun control laws are put in place for the sole purpose of stopping criminals from getting their hands on a firearm. I think everyone knows that is not the reality.
What gun control laws are good for is to hold people accountable and further punish someone who was doing other illegal things. When a cop arrests someone and they find that this person has a gun that they obtained illigally, we have an extra charge that we can to their rap sheet.
If someone obtains a gun illegally, and then someone else uses that gun in a crime, we can prosecute the “owner” because he is irresponsible.
I hope CJ enjoys his constiutional right to protest his view that his constutional rights are somehow being violated.
true story. Woman I dated a few years back, her ex was busted for having a stolen handgun and he was a felon. Guess how many days he spent in jail for that FEDERAL crime? less than 60. In a county jail. He should have been locked up in the state pokey for years. It’s laughable these lawmakers spout all of this garbage but DA’s balk at sending some of these pieces of shit away for a long time. Whatever happened to the punishment fitting the crime? Toughen the laws we already have on felons being in possession of firearms or actually enforce them (especially stolen ones) then get back to me.
Week-old news but nice article. http://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/sports/college/oregon-state/2015/03/21/osu-women-cap-historic-day-dual-meet-win-utah/25167699/
Whilst most have been paying attention to the major post-season tournaments, I’ve been noticing the College Insider tournament, because of NJIT – the orphan team of Div I MBB. Their gym looks like something from an eastern Montana high school. Tuesday night, they will play Northern Arizona in Flagstaff. http://www.njithighlanders.com/news/2015/3/28/MBB_0328151914.aspx
I like their story. They got some nice press when they beat Michigan, but Michigan did turn out to be very average this year. I think they had a huge losing streak when they were first transitioning to D-1.
Lineup shakeup today, Donahue to lead off, Morrison hitting 5th. No Gabe Clark,
Now Casey benches Gabe Clark!
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Sparty to the final four
OT- but I think it’s time for Vern Lundquist to hang up the mic, in addition to the continuous little mistakes over the tourney, I’m pretty sure he announced to the national audience that the Duke/Gonzaga game was “over on TBS” when it’s on CBS right after the game he was covering.
Make a Costco run. Woman sets DVR to record MSU game. Woman does not set it with extended time so it runs out right as L’ville starts the last possession of the game. Man misses end of game and OT and has murderous thoughts towards woman.
Extended time is a given with a sporting event, I hope your punishment was appropriate for the lack of common sense! My wife spent three days in the shed when she did that once for a Beaver football game.
that’s your bad. never have your wife set the dvr for you. get the app on your phone and do it yourself.
Would be totally justified murder imo
Arizona stomps ducks 13-4 to complete the sweep
You can take the decision and the ranking from the ucks, but you’ll never get those awful looking uni’s!!
Then again, who’d want ’em?
Anybody else having trouble with the stream?
Angry’s main man to pinch hit.
Beavs win 4-2 to salvage last game of the series
Mustangs with ZERO errors in the series, sure turned around that .955 fielding mark.
C-boy and KJ providing a glimpse of good things to come. Clark?…….well, he’s due!
Due to be a bench warmer
Tough weekend against the alleged “lower level” team. Will be good to get back to the easy PAC-12. On to LA! JB
Raise your hand if you predicted 3 weeks into conference play that Utah would have more Pac-12 wins (3) than the ducks (2)
Upper half of the conference is very good this year
With gymnastics, football (until we stole their staff), basketball, and baseball so far, Utes are having quite the year
Beavers vs Gophers for 2015 JC PF Chris Boucher. If he wants immediate PT he will come to Minnesota. The cupboard is bare in the front court.
What are the rumors about Gomis coming back?
Sounds like someone is leaving if they are looking to sign someone in the late period. Or Stangel is going to lose his scholarship to free up a spot.
Stangel will already be off scholarship next year anyway.
My scholarship count for next year:
Stephen Thompson Jr
none (Chai Baker medically retired, doesn’t count against limit of 13.)
Gary Payton II
So, that’s 13. If we are really after Christopher Boucher, then either Gomis or N’Diaye are leaving, or Tres Tinkle is going to be a walk on. I’d bet Gomis is leaving. It’d be nice to spread out these scholarships a little better. I bet we take 2 JUCO kids or a transfer or two in 2016.
And/or perhaps Robbins will leave.
We can only hope
Since it’s a big guy they’re pursuing then Gomis is probably gone which would hurt the defense. Damion Lee one of the best scoring guards in the country is gonna transfer from Drexel, if I was Tinkle I would be recruiting him as well as Boucher. Team needs scoring and guys like that are real game-changers. If they landed him then they can say goodbye to Robbins and move on.
Shhhh…..don’t given Altman any ideas or Damion Lee will be a Duck before you know it and the Beavs are right back where they started.
I wonder if any of the soon to be seniors would redshirt next year. Would be nice to even out some of the classes. The most graduation per year is ideally 3 or 4.
I would redshirt Robbins and LMW. That would make 4 SRs next year and 4 Srs the following year. They will be fighting hard to get minutes next year but wouldn’t the following year, unless Tinkle signs another top class.
Boy, I wouldn’t think so. Frankly, I’d rather get most of those kids out of the system as quick as we can anyway. I think we can split the class up with a couple JUCO kids or a transfer or two in the 2016 class.
looks to me like he needs to hit the weight room and bulk up……..
Is he really being recruited by Oregon St now? I see some stuff where Oregon was interested in him at one time.
Could we start a new thread about Spring football?
